Stall Uorrespoudenco Evenlnv Journal. Dover, March "9 —The fight over the inter-state boundary line bas been car ried to the Geueral Assembly. B*pre eentative Walker, of Mill Creek hundred, has introduced the following bill in tbe House : "Whereas, tho General Assembly of the State of Delaware by an act passed at Dover April 25, 1889, entitled 'An act in relation to the boundary line between the State of Delaware and tbe commonwealth of Pennsylvania,' did appoint Hon Thomas F Biyard. Hon B L. Lewis and Hun John H Hofftoker, commissioner« ou the part of the 8 ate of Delaware to act in conjunction with a similar commission from the common wealth of Pennsylvania to examine, survey and re establish the boundary line separating this state irom the commonwealth of Pennsylvania "Aud Whereas, When said boundary line should, pursuant, to the provisions of said act, be thus fixed, re-established aud relocated. It was thereby made the duty of said commissioner«, acting in conjunction with the commissioners aforesaid, by and on behalf of the com monwealtb of Pennsylvania, to mark its location by the erection of enduring monuments and acting iu conjunction as aforesaid to make a detailed report iu duplicate of tbeir operations, which said report executed in duplicate as afore said, should, together with tbe field notes aud surveys, descriptions of mouu meut«, maps and other items of interest, connected with said work, be signed in duplicate by eaeli of said ccmailstionert and by the civil engineers emp'oyed iu said work; one of said duplicates, to gether with the field notes, to be taken ty tbe commissioners appointed by and on bshaif of the commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the other of said duplicates, together with the field notes, etc , to be taken by tbe commissioners appointed by and on behalf of the State ot Delaware, aud by said last mentioned commissioners to be recorded In the recotder's office for New Castle county, State of Delawste, and after being so recorded, to be forwarded to end filed in tbe office of t he secretary of state of the State of Delaware and by h in recorded and tiled and carefully preserved iu his office as are other official documents deposited by law in said office. "And Whereas, The divisional line between the State of Delaware and the commonwealth of Pennsylvania Is tbe circular line surveyed and' marked 1701 under a warrant issued by William Pena In pursuance of tbe feoffment of the Duke of York, dated August 24, 1082, as the tim« has been held, occupied and recngr.izsd by tbe said states respectively ever since lhat date "And Whereas, It appears that said commissioners, claiming to act under the duty Imposed as aforesaid, located and fixed a line by the erection of monuments for the separation of this state from the commonwealth of Penn sylvania as shown by (heir report, n corded in the recorder's office for Ne* Castle comity auu filed in tbe office of the secretary of state as aforesaid, not being or corresponding with the «aid divisional circular line as surveyed aud mat kid In 1701 and as the same has been held, occupied and recognized by said states respectively ever since that time "Therefore, Be it enacted bv the öenata and House of Representatives of tbe 8tate of Delaware in General Assem bly met : "Section 1 That the boundary line between this state and tbe common wealth of Pennsylvania, is declared tobe the circular line surveyed and marked in 1701 under a warrant issued by William j Penn in pursuance cf the feclTment of I the Duke of York, dated August 24, 1682, I as the same has been held, occupied aud I recognized by the said states respectively ever since that date "Section 2.—Tbat the line fixed and located by sneb commissioners, as shown in said report, is not and shall not be considered or taken to be the boundary line between this state and the common wealth of Pennsylvania, nor shall said report or auy of said monuments or uurveys, descriptions or maps be evidence of said boundary line." Tne bill Is accompanied by a petition which sets forth at length the matters contained in the preamble, and concludes by Bsjiug: "Tbat tbe line as arbitrarily marked by said commissioners, if confirmed, will change tbe domicile and teiidences of many cilizens of the State of Delaware from this state to the commonwealth of Pennsylvania, thereby subjecting them to the laws, taxes, schools and other public institutions of the cnmmouweaitu of Pennsylvania, and causing them great inconvenience, ti jiny and damage. "Your petitioners, therefore, pray that the line fixed and located by said com missioneie, as shown in their report, be declared not to ho, and that the same shall not be considered or taken to bn the boundary line between this state and the commonwealth of Pennsylvania; aud tbat auld report and the monuments, surveys, desctiptlons and maps, shall not be evidence of said boundary line; and that tbe bonndary Hue of this stale and the commonwealth of Pennsylvania shall be declared to he the circulai surveyed and marked iu 1701, under warrant issued by William P«un la pursuance of the feoff ment of the Duke of York, dated August 24, 1682, as the same lias been held, occupied and recognlzjd by said states respectively ever since that time; and that tbe governor bs authorized to appoint three competent persons as com missioners representing this state, who shall he authorized to set tn conjunction with a similar commission from tbe commonwealth of Pennsylvania, to re survey, restore,!e establish and mark tbe bonndary line separating this state from the commonwealth of Pennsylvania, ea said boundary line has been h«id,occupied gnd recognized by ee'd states respectively ever since the year 1701, and that au MS or acta of the General Assembly may be parsed, according to the prayer of your petitioners " It is signed by E A Thompson, Frederick M Qnnn, W.

An aot to repeal chrpter 768, vol 19, Laws of Delaware, and to repeal and supplement section 26, of chapter 153, vol 15. of the Laws of Delaware, was f tven notice of by Representative Pyle, t relate« to the road tax of the city of New Castlo The set sought to be wiped oat entirely provides that the roada are to bn kept up by the city within Its limits, and the causeway and bridges to b* maintained by the county Uudor it the comity officei a are not permitted to collect road tax within the city, R being made the duty of the City Council of New Caatle to levy tax far city roads and streets, the rate not to exceed 30 c^nts on the $100, and $6ti0 annually to be paid to the road commissioners The section of chapter 152, vol. 15, which it ig intended to repeal and sup plement, U as folio we: "That the county roads passing through the limits of the city of New Castle Khali continue to be kept up and repaired by the hundred and county of Newcastle, a» heretofore, and that the road commissioners of New Castle bun dr«d shall, such year after the passage of this act, pey fifty per emit,. of the road taxes laid on and collected from persons and estates within the city of New Castle, to the treasurer of the said city of New Ca«i le. for the maintenance and repair of the streets of said c'ly, under the dirrcion of the Ctty Council, and this shall apply to and iuclude the road taxes as efoj esald for the year 1875 " Jnst what the supplement to Ibis section will be Mr. Pyle does not kuow, as he baa not yet received it. Through the Easy Fart. The Houso passed the Senate bill to incorporate Vigilant Connell, No. It), Jr O U A M. T he House bill to transfer the farm of Robert Arnold from tchonl district No 17 to school district No 78, in Sussex county, also paseed the lower House.lt will not be the fault oft he House if there is not a rednettou in the number of officers of the Wilmington Fountain Society. It passed tbe bill redt ting the number of vice-presidents from three to oneaodlhs number of directors from twenty-four to seven. The Unlucky Number. The House killed the Seuate bill to incorporate the Hibernia Blowing Com pany. The objection to it was that Its powers were too sweeping Thirteen members voted against It aud fire for it. Limited to Bli Hundred. The House pasted tbs House bill to extend fer two years the terms of the trustees apoointed to sell the old alms house property in New Castle county, with amendments fixing the compensa Mon of each trustee at $609. The bill further provides that tbe money which is now or may hereafter be inthe bands of the trustees shall be applied exclu siveiy to the rrdemption of the bouds on the new almshouse. They Want a Supplement. The incorporators of the Newark Real Estate Company are not satisfied with their charter which was granted on Febiuary 9, 1895 They have sent to Representative Walker a supplement which is as follows; "That it shall bs lawful for the dlreo tors of said corporation to divide among the stockholders thereof, from time to lime, the proceeds of the sale of any real or personal properly of tbe corpora tlon and to divide, withdraw or pay to tbe stockholders, from time to time, any part or all of the capital of said corpora tion, thereby reducing the capital stock of Baid corporation, provided, howover, that all of said pay ment shall be endorse! on the cer tlficates of stock of said corporation." Tri-State Telephone Company. Repreientatlve Pyle Introduced a bill to iuoorporate tbe Dslmarvia Telephone Company. The lucorporators are Edwin T Ditworth, J. Wilkins Ooocb, Anson A Maber, Joseph L Carpenter, Jr, Mar* M Cleaver, William B Clerk àud Daniel VV. Taylor. The powers they ask for are to construct, maintain and operate tele phone lines iu ail parts of the state and Peninsula, with power to manufacture, buy aud tell all Instruments, fixtures and materials used in the business, and to dispos# of such or auy property, fran chises or privileges which it. may acquire Capital stock, $11)0 000, with power to increase. The prmoipal office shall bs in Wilmington. Not a Vota Against It. If Senator Hanby does not feel com plimented he ought to, for his bill iu relation to the rosds and highway« of Brandywine hundred passed the Sana's without a diet anting vote. It Wes quite amusing, too. Senator Pierce reported the b 11 favorably, and, as soon as be did so. Speaker Watson calltd him to tbe chair and went on the floor, taking a seat in the back part of the room near Senator Records, with whom be ex changed a few worts. This looked like a fight against the bill and Senator H yjby grew nervous Tbe first seotion was read and Speaker Watson arose aud asked for an explanation as to tbe t»x levy. Senator Hanby explained and then, as the reading proceeded, walked over, sat down between Speaker Watson and Senator Harrington and began bnzzlng away to dispel tbeir donbts. Speaker Watson left him. took s chair In front of tbe desk of tbe Evening Jour nal correepondent, saying in a stage whisper tbai ho wanted to get away from the talking as it confused him. The correspondent reached iu his desk, took a printed copy of the bill from his scrap book and handed it to the speaker who followed the reading word by word and line by line This betokened opposition of the first magnitude, aud the Brandywine senator's brow began to send cut little globules of perspiration.
